I recently came across an article in the Osprey Modelling Manuals "Soft Skin Vehicles" regarding liquifying plastic with nitrocellulose to make tread plate. I thought it would be something interesting to try, but... there isn't a source page anywhere in the book. Does anybody know of a readily available source of nitrocellulose so I can try this technique? Is there an equivalent I could use?
.....a looong time ago!, I dissolved all my old sprues and suchlike in a solvent made by Winsor & Newton (I think it was called Winsol? like I said it was a long time ago!)I've since looked for this solvent but cant find it, they probably changed the name?
But this is surely another avenue for you to explore?
I will be as interested as you, Jeremy, to see the outcome of this as my little jar of "liquid goo" was one of my most used tools way back when!
